Immediately after graduating from an Italian high school, Nadia Durigon, 24, decided to follow her lifelong dream and work as an entertainer on a cruise ship. Three years later, Durigon decided to attend the University of Urbino in Italy, but eventually she chose to follow another dream and go to America. Now Durigon is studying Communications and Media as a foreign exchange student at SUNY New Paltz. She enjoys her weekends traveling around the U.S. and she plans to leave résumés with businesses in New York in hopes of working in America in the future.
